Pixel Playhouse Presents A Live Interactive Musical Comedy: DEFINITELY NOT CLUE Definitely Not Clue is an ambitious, interactive murder mystery musical adventure developed for Twitch that combines live and pre-recorded elements with in-chat audience engagement for a truly unique and polished take on digital theatre. Pixel Playhouse founders Graham Wetterhahn and Vijay Nazareth have been developing theatre for a digital age since mid-2019.
